TRESCIMO improves Future Internet Research Experimentation testbed capabilities in Europe and in South Africa, demonstrated through experimental research linking smart and green technological and social innovation. The project is analyzing functional and non-functional requirements coming from environments in emerging countries in order to feed them into the development of a Smart City platform, which allows the deployment of applications adapted to the needs of emerging countries, especially to South Africa. The federation framework and the experimental facility will provide an open interface that allows further cooperation within the context of Future Internet experimental research.
